Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name ★★★½

Beautiful cinematography and a relaxing score for this realistic and very well acted portrayal of first love that sadly didn't touch me as much as it did other people (Elio's treatment of Marzia, also was Oliver engaged this entire time??).

I know it's not the film's subject matter but among all their intellectual talk, the question of social class and how privileged these people are is never even mentioned with the servants being completely taken for granted.
Then again, I haven't read the book, so this may not be an issue as an adaptation.
Despite these minor issues, the simplicity of its romance (and the lack of anything sensational in its plot) strangely makes it one of the most memorable ones in recent years, thanks to its authenticity and again, its very convincing and devoted performances.
